On this show we pay tribute to the recently departed Wallace Roney and Manu Dibango. There's a couple of tracks from Manu and selection of highlights from Wallace picking up on work associated with his mentor Miles Davis.
I also feature the recent album from guitarist Tomas Janzon in a great quartet, and there's also the intriguing Schapiro17 with their fascinating re-working of Miles Davis's Kind of Blue into big band arrangements.
There's a dip in the archive for a groundbreaking track from Wadada Leo Smith from 1978, plus, a recently released album from Ingrid Laubrock who is in some fine company.
